Etymology of the name CYNFARCH.
Meaning of the baby name CYNFARCH.

  

CYNFARCH.  Welsh Arthurian.  "Dog-horse."  The father of Llew, Arawn, and Urien.  Cf. Cynocephalus.

... A peculiarity in the case of some of them is the blending of two animal names to form a single personal name, as Cynfarch (dog-horse) and Arthflaidd (bear-wolf)... (Archaelogical Review, v.4, 1890)

    To Arawn, the son of Cynfarch, Arthur gave the territory which the Scots had occupied; to Llew, son of Cynfarch, the Earldom of Lindsay, as being brother-in-law to himself and to Gwyar (the mother of Gwalchmai, the general), and he also gave Reged to Urien, another son of Cynfarch. (The Chronicle of the Kings of Britain, Roberts, 1811)
